Researchers Use The Oculus Rift to Swap Genders

Researchers Use The Oculus Rift to Swap Genders

Here’s an interesting use for the Oculus Rift that I didn’t see coming. Researchers are using the virtual reality device to allow two people to swap genders.

Of course it’s not as easy as it sounds. The Oculus Rift can only draw you in through visual cues, creating a less than perfect experience. The researchers at The Machine to Be Another overcame this by instructing the two subjects to use slow and precise movements at the same time, mimicking each other, thus creating the full illusion that each person is in the others body.

Pretty cool stuff. I think the Oculus Rift is going to be our first foray into true virtual reality and I can’t wait to see what more people do with it. Check out the video below, but be warned, it does contain nudity (non-sexual).

    The girl in the grey panties is really attractive.

    The future – VR sex like they were havin’ in Demolition man.

    That aside, this research seems silly, to say the least. Merely projecting an another individuals body and instructed to do the same movements.

    I’ve got an idea, calibrate it to a POV porn, and bust out the ol’ fleshlight. Mhmm mhmm. Just discovered a new way to get yourself off.

    lol, Oh Pantyhamster, you genius you. But this seems as close as we’ll get to a scientifically documented out-of-body experience. Regardless, boobies! FOR SCIENCE!

    I can’t wait until someone does an Oculus Rift/Fleshlight combo

    Oh I can see it now; you have a flashlight toy on a pole that’s attached the to Rift and you bob your head up and down to simulate giving yourself a blowjob. Actually, you could probably do that now with some copper wire hangers and duct tape.

  6. Noah says:

    Oh, and I like how you added a warning about the nudity in the video, Corey, just in case we forgot where we were didn’t want to sully our good, wholesome sensabilities.

    Also, the one chick with the decent sized bewbs; her’s weren’t too bad. Not amazing looking, but I’d fuck with those.

    Yay! Softcore porn.

    The beginning of the SQUID Device from Strange Days.

  9. DevilSugar says:

    Erm, Noah? Coat hangers plus my junk seems like only an equation for pain, and I’m not sure I can duck tape can fix THAT area.
